Crystal River and Rio Grande Railroad

At the urging of T. M. Davidson, the Crystal River Railroad Company1 was formed to build a narrow gauge track that would carry silver ore and marble out of Crystal River Valley. This track reached Marble Springs in 1880 and joined the Denver & Rio Grande line at Glenwood Springs in 1887. After the quarry closed its doors, the railroad tried to bring in tourists, but the Crash in 1929 thwarted this plan. In 1930, the railroad closed. Parts of the graded track remain as a hiking trail into Marble Springs.
